View total work logged in a issue?


I noted that in Jira cloud it´s not possible to view the total worklog or Σ Time Spent in a issue view.
I´m working on an automation for copy the sum of total hours logged in an issue to a custom field.

I´ve tried two types of custom field: Number and Text Field (single line).

The automation:


For copy the values of Σtime spent on the custom field i tried the following:




In all cases, the automation execute as successful, but both custom fields dont show anything.

any help?

Hi @Sofia Quintero,
On behalf of the Planyway team, I'd like to suggest you check Planyway out. You can see the total tracked time on cards right on the timeline and compare it with the estimated effort. For example: Planyway time tracking for Jira Fields

If any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Hello @Tania _Planyway_ , thank you for your suggestion.

You should be able to see Original estimate and Time tracking....and they should provide all you need (without automation). Can you not see these fields in your instance?

@Curt Holley Thank you for answer, i realized that for some reason i couldn´t see time tracking as you indicated, in an instance that use Tempo. But i tried in other test instance that doesn´t have temppo installed, and y could see the same way as you showed in screnshoot.
Thank you.
